Kauai Visit Offers Family-friendly Fun

We all have great memories from our vacations with our families. On your Kauai visit, lots of fun and memorable activities await you. Jump right in and soak up the history, the culture and the many stunning views that our Garden Island offers. Below we offer a few more suggestions to include on your family-friendly trip.

Kauai Plantation Railway

One of the best ways to learn more about Hawaii’s sugar plantation era includes booking the Kauai Plantation Railway train ride through the Kilohana Plantation. One of 10 Kauai plantations, the legendary sugar baron Gaylord Wilcox oversaw Kilohana. The word means “not to be surpassed.” In 1935, Wilcox built the 16,000-square-foot mansion housed on the plantation. A Historic Landmark today, many cite it as a top example of Hawaiian plantation architecture.

The “40-Minute Signature Train Tour” carries visitors around the 105-acre plantation in elegant mahogany passenger cars — replicas of this 19th century period. Still a working farm, on your Kauai visit you will get views of more than 50 exotic fruits and visit its farmyard filled with pigs, goats, sheep, cattle and horses.

Other Can’t-Miss Activities on Your Kauai Visit

Waimea Canyon: A few more activities your family might relish include driving a 14-mile stretch of Highway 550, also called “the canyon road.” A handful of lookouts offer jaw-dropping views of Waimea Canyon, labeled as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific by famous American author Mark Twain. During your Kauai visit, you must see this 10-miles long canyon that plunges about 3,600-feet deep.

Kayak Wailua River: You can also kayak the Wailua River, a fun-filled adventure the whole family can do during you Kauai visit. The island’s largest and only navigable river offers scenic views and the only way to reach the 100-foot Uluwehi Falls, also called “Secret Falls.”

Silver Falls: See breathtaking Kauai sights on horseback at Silver Falls. The trail includes an 80-acre tropical botanical garden where 150 different species of palm trees thrive. Additionally, the ranch sits near Makaleha Caldera – considered the birthplace of Kauai and other Hawaiian islands nearly five million years ago.

Kilauea Lighthouse: Finally, visit the Kilauea Lighthouse and Wildlife Refuge. This 52-foot high cylindrical white tower with its red lantern roof opened in 1913. It sits on Kilauea Point about 180-feet above the Pacific Ocean. In addition, the narrow lava peninsula provides a protective habitat for many rare Hawaiian seabirds and endangered wildlife.
